    We loved our meal in Bramley. There is a relaxed atmosphere and it is not pretentious in any way. The service is efficient and not intrusive. The help with choosing the wine to go with the dishes was most helpful. We had the tasting menu and enjoyed each course. The only problem was fitting in the chocolate desert after so many courses! We would love to go back.

    We had a truly lovely evening, with excellent service my members of staff who would have been from the local area which is always great to see. I had scallops to start, prepared exactly as they should be and the special fly cut beef which was sublime in my opinion, the chocolate soufflé, was also excellent though not to everyone’s taste. The wine menu is very affordable and the overall decor appealing. The only difficulty we had was noise level, there being little by way of soft furnishings to absorb sound and the table beside us was noisy, and therefore difficult for my father to hear. Other than that, an extremely enjoyable evening and I will certainly be returning.

    Had a wonderful catch up with a friend while enjoying a gorgeous tasting menu. Paired with a bottle of rosé (reasonably priced) we enjoyed every morsel. Staff were well trained and attentive. Courses were well spaced. Can’t wait to go back!

    This was our second visit to Bramley. First was for dinner and it was divine. Every little piece of food was packed with flavour. We returned for a Fathers Day lunch and it didn't disappoint! Really nice atmosphere, food was fantastic again. 5 stars all around.
